SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – Mike Webb, Bass Pro Shops sponsored angler and owner of Webb’s Guide Service, shares what’s bitting on area lakes for the week of May 19.
Bull Shoals Lake:
The top water bite is very good early! The best bite has been on a buzz bait or a small wake bait. Mid-day the Ned Rig or shaky head are still the best go to bait. The fish are 18-25 feet deep on flat points.
Table Rock Lake: Top water fishing is awesome early around the flooded bushes or docks in the back of pockets. Mid-day the best bait is the football jig in 22 feet of water on flat points. Also, the under spin with a speed shad trailer is working around the docks and bluff ends.
Ned rigs and shaky heads are working the best around steeper pockets. Keep a Pop-R top water ready for bass chasing shad.
Lake of the Ozarks:
The use of vibrating jigs (white) around docks near the back of pockets are working good. Also a wake bait on ledge rock banks are producing some nice bass. The Ned Rig is the most consistent bait all day.
